I may be from Indiana, but it’s not often that I eat what would probably be considered classic midwestern fare. Recently I decided to make an exception, splurge, and make a classic Sunday dinner for some friends. With fresh sweet corn on the cob, green beans, fried chicken and buttermilk chive biscuits, this was quite a fantastic Sunday meal. And of course, the perfect ending – chocolate sheet cake. Ben loved this dinner so much that he declared I could make it all over again later this month for his birthday dinner.
I really loved all the components of the meal, but I think these biscuits were my favorite part. Warm, tender and flaky buttermilk biscuits are very hard to resist, especially with the flavor of fresh chives added to the mix. These are great for entertaining because the dough can be mixed, shaped and frozen in advance, and then they can be baked directly from the freezer by simply adding a few minutes to the baking time. My only mistake was not making a larger quantity. I certainly won’t do that again!
